Welcome!

Dear Fourth Grader and Family,

            I am extremely excited to be your teacher this year! Wow! Can you believe you are a fourth grader now? In my opinion, fourth grade is the best year! We will be learning about exciting things like light, electricity, motion and simple machines in Science, we will build on the Math skills you have acquired in earlier grades in multiplication, division, fractions, and geometry, in Social Studies we will learn about the American Revolution and Westward Expansion, we will have both a Reading and a Writing Workshop to help us become more effective readers and writers, and lastly, we will delve deeper into our Catholic faith and learn about our Church, the goodness of God, and our role in our Church, our community, and our world.  Aren’t you excited now? We have so many more adventures ahead, but I don’t want to spoil all of the surprise!

            You may be wondering who I am, so let me share a little bit about myself.  I have been teaching since 2003, but I started at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is 2010.  I received my Master’s in Teaching from American University in Washington, D.C. I continue to take classes and workshops to keep my teaching fresh and exciting. (Even teachers go to school!) I grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, but moved to Charleston with my husband and daughter in 2009. In 2012, we welcomed a new addition to our family, our son Wyatt. I have enjoyed being a part of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School community, and I look forward to many years to come.

  Fondly,

  Mrs. Stover

Parent Information: Communication/Grading/Absences/Homework

Communication
Email is the best means of communicating with me. Anytime you have a question or concern, please email. I will send a quick response as soon as possible. 
Email: astover@scbss.org

Also, I have set up an online site approved by Mrs. Murphy where parents will be sent an email notice with pictures or videos directly from our classroom! The site is www.homeroom.com. No pictures or videos will be posted on the public school class page.


Grading
Grades are weighed as follows: Tests are 50%, Quizzes are 30%, and Classwork are 20%..


Absences
If your child misses school, please have them set up a time  to conference with me the day they return. During our conference, we will go over the information he/she missed and schedule a due date for missed work.

Homework: The amount of time given to homework should be 60 minutes or less. 20 minutes of AR reading, 10 minutes of study time, and 30 minutes or less of written work. Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday nights; however, I do occasionally assign long-term projects or reports. Most fourth graders still need some form of supervision while completing homework. Others need close supervision and encouragement to finish. Please look over your child’s work to see if he/she has completed the homework for the night and sign the assignment book. Helping with homework is encouraged in moderation. The goal is for students to do their own work so please help with one or two Math problems and then let them complete the rest. No need to correct their work at home. I like to see where more instruction is needed.
Homework is posted nightly, along with test/project dates and events. Please check the class page each night before starting homework.

 

PARENTS, MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
